Business - General Transfer

Three Men Sitting at a Table

Pursue an Associate of Science (AS) in Business and acquire an overview of fundamental business practices, how businesses function and operate, and the influencing factors in decision making. This AS degree is available 100% online or on campus and can be transferred to a four-year university. 

As you progress through the general business program, you'll be able to confidently develop a business plan, identify and analyze innovative business opportunities, and pitch new concepts to customers and investors. 

Many general business courses will transfer to a four-year institution but some do not. Be sure to plan your course schedule with your academic advisor

By transferring your AS degree in business and pursuing a bachelor's degree in a specific business discipline, you may find employment opportunities as an accountant, database administrator, financial analyst, human resource specialist, market research analyst, loan officer, risk manager and many others.
